BUDGET 2021: MANAGING THE
PANDEMIC, PUBLIC & POLICIES

Assessing the challenges the Indian Govt. faces in the run-up to one of our most crucial budgets ever

About the event

The 2021 budget.

Millions around India are waiting for what they anticipate as the “Budget of Hope”, a budget that will kickstart the revival of the economy after the unprecedented impact of the pandemic last year.

How will the budget 2021 address the challenges of the worst-affected? Can it revive the ‘animal spirit’ of the economy – while lifting the spirits of the common man? Will the measures be stop-gap arrangements or transformational?

Kautilya’s panel discussion on the 2021 Budget saw several eminent minds answer these questions, and share their perspectives.
